Monster Jam in Oakland

Hey everyone–hope you’re all enjoying your weekend! This weekend is the start of a week-long February break for us and we kicked it off last night with Monster Jam in Oakland!

Got settled in with our food quite early before the show started.

With the stormy weather we’ve been having, we were concerned it would be raining like last year, so we came prepared with rain jackets and ponchos. Fortunately, the rain held off, but the ponchos were a nice extra layer from the wind.

We got to the pit party pretty early and the kids enjoyed getting up close to some of the monster trucks.

The wind made it a little uncomfortable for them, but it was nothing a little Monster Jam popcorn couldn’t help.

It was Emme’s first time at Monster Jam, so it was a lot of fun getting her up close to the monster trucks.

but she definitely enjoyed getting her own monster truck wheel ear protectors.

And popcorn!

Emme and I were routing for El Toro Loco because it’s a cool truck and had the only female driver in the show. She did great in the freestyle competition thanks to this cool backflip.

Both kids loved the backflips, car crushing and when trucks flipped over or started on fire. Check out the smoke coming from this guy.

Both diggers–Grave Digger and Son-Uva Digger–stole the show, but Jester redeemed himself in the end with a great freestyle performance. It was a fun experience and I’m so glad Emme enjoyed her first monster truck show. Monster Jam is coming back to Santa Clara in April and MaxD will be at that one, so if you missed the Oakland show, you still have another chance to see it in the Bay Area this year.

Now we’re looking forward to seeing Disney On Ice on Wednesday night! The winner of those tickets is Ashley Y! The winner has been contacted. Thanks for entering!
